The New Beauty Rules for 2012

Forget detox diets and military fitness regimes. A few small beauty tweaks will transform the way you look and feel

1. LEARN YOUR LINES

Did you know massaging your face in a circular motion could make you look older? 'It simply moves excess fluid around and stretches the skin,' says facialist Emma Hardie. 'Massaging in lines, which is how collagen is constructed, lifts and tones.' When moisturising or cleansing, start with your hands together anywhere on the face and firmly pull the skin horizontally or vertically from your starting point. Learn to do it professionally at an Emma Hardie Face Facts workshop and Space NK, £15.

2. HI-TECH SKIN STARS

Set to be the biggest new innovation in skincare, glycobiology is the science that studies glycons, which play a crucial role in the renewal of skin. And YSL is the first to apply this science to a skincare line - try new YSL Forever Youth Liberator, £60. Other skincare wonders to look out for this year are Biotherm Skin Vivo Uniformity Day Cream, £42, and La Prairie Cellular Power Charge Night, £310. Or to smooth out lined peepers, Givenchy Vax'In for Youth, £39, has a bran new formulation that will plump up wrinkles from deep down.
